Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

Eagles Abroad is brought to you by Grubber, makers of fine sporting apparel. 

Good news for Americans overseas as a couple players return from their post-World Cup layoff and a couple earn their first starts.  Blaine Scully was given a few weeks off after the World Cup but is now with Cardiff and set to earn his first start. Cam Dolan is carrying an injury and won't play for the Blues. Chris Wyles also returns and is on the bench for Saracens. Titi Lamositele is on the bench for the Sarries once again. Another player making a start is Greg Peterson who gets his first nod for the Glasgow Warriors. Eric Fry also gets his first start of the season. Elsewhere, leagues and competitions are heating up with the exception of the lower divisions in England who are justifiably taking the weekend off.
